Markets in Focus: Who Let the Bears Out?

Global equities have entered a bear market and investors face continued headwinds as they navigate a market regime characterized by increasing interest rates, inflation running at 40-year highs and slowing economic growth. Investors are turning to inflation and defensive strategies to manage market volatility and economic tightening in an effort to create more resilient portfolios.

Watch on-demand our Q3 Markets in Focus webinar as MSCI experts discussed how incorporating real assets and defensive positioning can help investors create more adaptable portfolios in today’s turbulent markets

We also discussed our new equity factor models, which enable clients to better understand the drivers of their portfolio risk and return and adapt to changing market dynamics. These models also help investors measure the carbon intensity exposure of their portfolio and manage the pathway toward their net- zero commitments

Agenda topics:

  • How can real asset, defensive sectors and factor indexes help investors better position their portfolios during market volatility and tighter market conditions?
  • Where have crowded trades unwound and where are new bubbles forming?
  • MSCI’s new equity factor models: Innovations in adaptive covariance, sustainability, and machine learning factors.
